Now that our new 2017 boards are here, our shop is absolutely overflowing with summer excitement. We’ve put together a quick overview of some of our staff’s favorite new styles. We carry boards at all our locations, but our Buckhead store has largest selection of new 2017 boards. If you'd like to test a board out before purchasing, you can rent one or take one out for a demo ride, and if you love it, the cost of your rental or demo will be deducted from the board price.
This year, we’ve replaced the BOTE Axiom with the BOTE Flood. It’s strong, stable, and essentially same as the Axiom, but with additional attachment points, the option for a tackle rack, and a much lighter weight. It comes in three styles; from back to front: classic, native and core. The Core style was introduced at the end of last year. Core boards have a full deckpad spanning the entire length of the board, meaning added comfort for SUP yoga and for paddling with your dog or child on board. It's available in 12' or 10'6", priced from $1249 to $1449.
The HD from BOTE continues to be a favorite of our staff and customers alike. The HD is a hybrid between a recreational surf style hull and a displacement touring hull, meaning that this board is easy to paddle and stable at the same time. It comes in 5 styles; from front to back: Realtree, Classic, Bugslinger, Native, and Core. It's availble in 12' or 10'6", priced from $1449 to $1799.
The YOLO Original is back with some stunning new artwork! These whimsical designs and soothing colors evoke calm and happy thoughts, perfect for quiet morning yoga sessions on the water. The original is the best all-around SUP board from Yolo; it’s stable, easy to maneuver, and easy to transport. The Original comes in 10'6" ($1249) and 12' ($1295).
YOLO Hammerhead XT
The Hammerhead XT from YOLO has everything you want and more. Its thermo-mold construction makes it incredibly durable, but also super lightweight. It has an integrated bumper guard for added protection, comes in several bright new colors, and a brand new feature for 2017 is the LiftSUP handle to make transport even easier. Oh, and did we mention it’s only $799?
BOTE Drift Bugslinger
Fishing fanatics, listen up! The much-loved Drift from BOTE is now available in a Bugslinger version! Not only can you easily take this inflatable board anywhere with you, making your options truly endless, but the Bugslinger offers additional attachment points for all your gear. $1,249 for the 11'6" board.
Riviera Paddlesurf is an entirely new brand for us, and we are stoked to share these amazing boards with you. We carry the Raceboard in 12’6” and 14’, and at only $1449 and $1599 respectively, these are high quality racing boards that won’t break the bank.
